Daughter of Winter

I must admit, when I think of the word "Seasons" I stereo-typically think of the Seasons of Nature - Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer.

So when I saw that this was the theme for an exhibition being held in Margaret River (Western Australia) as part of the Readers and Writers Festival, I knew I wanted to paint a very ethereal/ghostly type girl, which would represent the Season - Winter.

However, there was a restriction. The size was to be no bigger than 18 x 18 inches. Typically I like to work large and might throw in a smaller piece every now and again, so I found this a bit of a challenge. A good kinda challenge though. I always like to change things up a bit, otherwise doing what I love the most, would get boring and then it would no longer be doing what I love (right?).

So here is the end result of my thought processes and I must say I am pretty happy. I cannot wait for the opening night of this exhibition on 2nd May. I LOVE OPENING NIGHTS. Why? Because it throws me out of my comfort zone. Yep I get so nervous, sweaty, jumpy and crazy all at the same time. As weird as that may sound to be excited about that, I am constantly looking of ways to push myself. Both in my artistic ability and my social skills ability (I am an introvert at heart).
